When pain is chronically a part of our lives, we often experience frustration, fear, sadness and isolation.
Currently, studies show that effective treatment of pain should include a biopsychosocial component. This means treating pain with biological means alone, such as medicine, is not adequate. Psychological and social care must also be available.
Chronic Health Conditions
Managing many on-going health issues such as diabetes, irritable bowel syndrome, sexual dysfunction, infertility and menopause, are usually associated with chronic mood and anxiety issues. Patients who use psychological services when incorporating options to either eradicate or at least reduce their health issue report improved outcome in their overall health condition.
